A Charmingly Unique & One-of-a-Kind Boutique – Creators Co-Op

I love finding those special shops that sells one of the kind, artisan hand crafted stuff when I travel. Like the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Neighborhood in Paris, or finding one of those hard to find hand-bounded books at those charming bookstores at Notting Hill in London and I just recently discovered this uniquely charming store in Astoria, New York area name “Creators’ Co-Op” !

Unlike any of those typical stores that sells well know designer brands or mass market boring item, This charming & vibrant store offers up one of the kind, hand-made unique items from various artists & designers, which it’s perfectly reflects the name of the store “Creators’ Co-Op”! The owner of the store Kazuki Kozuru-Salifoska said ~ “ This is a place for participating artists & designers to present their artisan creations – from fashion, accessories, handmade organic lotions & soap, jewelries, baby clothing to sculptures, all in a Co-Operative style venue. “ and I think it’s a genius idea!

Here are some of the fabulous designers & their artisan creations at the store….
